The original is not working so if it was going to go limp mode it should have happened already?
The price is good, factory part is 130US so will be expensive here?

No the canbus module if it has one in the light look for wisted pair of wires thats canbus. If the onhanglow one is no good or short then it can bring the bus down just like a trailer shorting with no trailer module . Keep in mind this is not what i claim its what could be happening. So if you keep the old one in the glovbox you can test should it be canbus .

Before going off shore I'd check with Startech Enterprises in Wiri. They sell a lot of new and 2nd hand Merc spares, know their stuff and don't charge like a wounded bull.
